You always have time to cook dinner when using a slow cooker. A little planning brings these chicken salad sandwiches to your table any night of the week.
If you are like me, just the thought of going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day stresses me out. What I like to do is go out the day before or after and then the day of stay in and cook! This week the 20 #TripleSBites bloggers (including myself) have been serving up recipes to inspire your Valentine’s Day menus or any day you feel like cooking something spicy, saucy, and sexy.
Today I bring you a slow cooker meal for those of you that think you don’t have time to cook. If you have the time to put chicken in the bowl of a slow cooker, then you have enough time to make these sandwiches. Cook on low, shred, and mix with your favorite salad dressing. I used roasted beet vinaigrette, but you could try ranch, caesar, balsamic vinaigrette, etc. Pile it onto a toasted bun with fresh lettuce and a slice of spicy pepperjack cheese and it’s dinner time! I served these with a side of crispy green beans seasoned with Voodoo Chef’s RED and dipped them in Intensity Academy’s Saucy Everything Spicy Mayo. I seriously want to dip everything in that sauce it was so good!

Foil-wrapped salmon couldn’t be easier and it perfect for weeknights or a fancy dinner. Cooked in a Greek inspired sauce and served over Greek orzo.
Day 3 of #TripleSBites! Today let’s talk about making sacrifices for love. For example, I cannot tell you the number of times I get scoffed at for not liking seafood with the pretense that since I am a food blogger I should love everything edible. Well I hate to break it to you but I don’t love all foods. I only love the ones that I like to eat which happens to be quite a lot, it just doesn’t include things such as seafood, pickles, and coffee. However, that doesn’t stop me from utilizing those things in the occasional recipe, especially when I am cooking for someone who will greatly appreciate it.
Salmon is my sacrifice. It is the last thing I think of when picking a protein for dinner. Chicken, beef, pork, and even tofu occur more frequently than any kind of fish in my kitchen. In fact I think this is only the third fish recipe I am sharing on the blog. Since my salmon cooking skills have not been truly tested I rely on simpler, foil-proof recipes. Pun intended as this is a recipe for foil-wrapped salmon. This Greek-style salmon was incredibly easy to throw together and while it baked I whipped up some orzo to go with it. I have to admit, I didn’t hate it. In fact it was quite good. It seems great sauces makes nearly anything pleasing to the palate.

After soaking in a sweet and spicy Asian inspired marinade, prepare yourself for one of the best steaks ever. Served with a dollop of herb butter that melts to perfection on top.
When it comes to romance, I am not the best at expressing myself with words. But put me in the kitchen and I’ll show you how I really feel. I’ll slave over something all day if I think it’ll win over your heart but at the same time, I have a few tricks up my sleeve that don’t keep me chained to the oven yet will still produce the same result. Take this steak for example, the night before you whip up the herb butter and throw the steaks in the marinade. The next day all you gotta do is cook the steaks for 4 minutes total (or more if you prefer no-pink), top it with the herb butter and watch it melt. You will instantly win the hearts of every single taste bud and you didn’t have to sacrifice quality time by being in the kitchen. (Served with Voodoo Chef RED rub roasted green beans)
